Today we are thrilled to announce the launching of the Albatross Blade Take Back Program. Double edged safety razor users can now mail their used blades back to us-- an important step towards higher sustainability performance of our products because many municipal recycling centers do not accept razor blades. Big expectations surround this program as a platform to increase our expertise with developing circular supply chains and untapping new opportunities for sustainability gains with future products.
Our Take Back program is currently focused on finding ways to increase the use value of recycled stainless steel blades. High quality stainless steel double edged blades are used around the world, and as such, could be used to make high quality subsequent products. Making this happen is our goal. To achieve this end, we have decided to expand our program to accept all double edged razor brands including those made by our competitors. Our take back program helps reduce stainless steel production energy by up to 67% and CO2 emissions by roughly 70%, and, as such, we want to keep as much stainless in the supply chain as possible. Stainless steel, like other metals, is a great material to work with because it is strong, versatile, and infinitely reusable.
We currently have products made out of our blade steel in mind that get incrementally more spectacular. For example: steel water bottles, living roofs and passive, home cooling systems could all be made of our recycled wonder steel! But, this effort ultimately starts with DE safety razor shaving. So we remind you of the merits of our Albatross SHAVES the World from Plastic DE safety razors.
Albatross SHAVES the World from Plastic is a powerful way to combat ocean plastic pollution, CO2 emissions from plastic razor production, and a slew of other environmental issues. If you haven’t tried, you should try today!
In honor of an important milestone, we are offering a 20% discount off your order when you buy 2 or more razors. Just use the code TAKEBACK at checkout. Remember, DE Safety Razors shave smoother and clog less than plastic cartridges. And, replacement blades sell for only $0.15 each.
Are you ready to experience the best shave outside of a Barber’s chair?
